The Double Traitor


Published December 16, 2012


LibriVox recording of The Double Traitor, by E. Phillips Oppenheim.
Read by Tom Weiss.

It is just prior to the outbreak of World War I. Germany is outwardly preparing for war but the ruling British government is pacifist and disbelieves that Germany has plans to attack any country. In fact, a vast German spy network flourishes in England, often in plain view. Our main character is Francis Norgate, an aspiring British diplomat stationed in Berlin. Norgate falls in disfavor with certain members of the German aristocracy for defending a woman’s honor while dining in Berlin. The scandal causes Norgate to be recalled to Britain. Norgate meets a German salesman, Herr Selingman, who claims to be a German crockery manufacturer. But, Selingman is not all he appears to be. During the train ride home, Norgate discovers certain facts about Germany and Herr Selingman but is unable to convince British authorities of Sellingman’s treachery. Disillusioned by the pacifist English government and the lack of cooperation, Norgate allows himself to be recruited as a German spy by Herr Selingman. What happens next is……but then I would spoil the story. (Summary by Tom Weiss)
